  2. More videos like this would be awesome…. Basic techniques.

  3. This is so useful.
    To take is a mistake, except you take this useful lesson.

  4. "What can I attack" is a real game-changer. It's amazing how often hidden resources jump to life when you ask it regularly. The problem is that it is so easy to fall back into passive habits; it takes discipline to think of counter-attacks on every move. Something I am still working on.

  5. Another great lesson that will help actually win games. Well Done

  6. "They haven't watched this video so they don't know that it is wrong" — ha ha — love the playful confidence.

  7. nice tips! I'll keep this in mind and think a little differently. I never thought about that cheeky tactic in this opening. opps will be demoralized as well going into the endgame haha

  8. Whenever i teach chess to someone wanting to get better, after all the basic stuff (development center tempo time material), the first thing i teach is “only take for a specific reason.”

    It really is a basic idea but getting used to playing closed games and leaving tension will help you advance so so so much.

  9. PLAY. LONGER. TIME. CONTROLS.

    Whatever control you are playing play at least one higher.

    Amazing content as always Igor. I recommend your channel to everyone i know that plays chess. 👍

  10. GhazarYa'oh Ban Lo'ay Aray'Al Yarash says:

    Igor my teacher!!!
    This lesson was gold. Much appreciated

  11. my first thought…
    Qa4
    if
    Bd7
    Nb5
    if Bxb5
    Qxb5
    if a6
    Qxb7

    if blacks defends
    Nd7
    after Qa4
    Bg5 f6

    idk it's good or not…

  12. I never play this opening, but I would have taken thinking the isolated pawn a target with helping him developer, what's wrong with this reason for taking?

  13. Hi Igor I like you vidoes alot and I also learned alot from you in this short time watching your vidoes…So that's why I would like to see you do all of these tactics in a LIVE GAME only if you don't mind😁🙏💯

  14. Nice video thanks! I can't find this piece set on lichess, do you use some custom extension to get it?

  15. Just starting getting into chess, you're my favorite teacher. Always happy to see a new video on something I can learn.

  16. Instead of pawn to D4 attacking white's knight, could black's queen play B6 to put pressure on F2 and B2?

  17. Hery MaDeMa (majapahit-demak-mataram) says:

    Thanks Igor, for the lesson…🙏

  18. A great lesson, even for those of us who have been playing for a while.
    Many 'forced' moves are anything but. Unless you are in check, you may miss greatness by just reacting defensively, as shown here. Defending a piece is meh if you had a great counterattack or other thwarting move.
    To boil down the nuances of chess into easy to grasp and easy to remember and apply lessons- true genius. Thank you.

  19. Brushing up on chess. Watched a few other people which are very entertaining perfect but I believe I'm liking yours, your advice the best and how you do it. Thanks

  20. Igor are you asking people to contact you on Telegram?? Or Are these impersonators trying to be you??

  21. Hello Igor, great video as always.

    Where can I watch you other channel about motivation and personal development? These videos were excellent.

  22. At 6:34 I would try as Black Bb4+ then when they interpose Nf, Qa4 unpinning and backing up the bishop. Also threatening Nxe4.

  23. If you like chess you watch hikaru, if u want to be good at chess u watch RCA

  24. Obviously, after 6. dxc4 Bxc4, 7. Bg5 will turn out badly for the reasons indicated. But if White doesn't do that, it seems to me that 6. dxc4 does serve a purpose – it leaves Black with an isolated d-pawn, which should be advantageous to White, no?

  25. Number 00. First you have 2 read or LOOK first at your opponents LAST MOVE brother, and then ask yourself, "What is the LOGIC behind that move boy?" Get my point?
    And then this.
    I learned this from a boy, an "FM" boy
    Step #01. Candidate moves
    02. Delete Candidate move
    03. Calculate
    04. Decision make
    and
    05. Make the move
    This "Technique" helps me sometimes when I'm playing Rapid
    My Elo rating in lichess is 1599 hahaha
    gg Well Played boy
    Respect and Chess

  26. 4:44 Knight e4
    If bishop takes sacrificial queen, checkmate with Bf2 🙂

  27. knight to e5 for white in the first section is the best imo

  28. 6:05 I would take your horse if I was white..total game changer.

  29. can u not check it first with the Queen? then B or NxN

  30. Your videos are very helpful. My Elo was 900 when I first saw your video. But now it is 1400. And it happen under 5 or 6 days. Your videos helping so much to improve my chess games.

  31. 6:20 is queen d5 a good option he never addressed it? To me it seems like a good move because it's aggressive and forks the bishop and knight but idk I'm pretty garbage at chess

  32. Hi Igor. As a beginner I watch your segments over and over. Thanks for these tips. I wondered what attack(s) to use. I heard Judit Polgar plays as an attacker, now I have some knowledge how to. I wish you all the best. Now I will subscribe to your channel. Regards, Tibor.

  33. Go a bit further not just attack, double attack if possible!

  34. Gm igor can u give an advice for aggresive opponent?

  35. Great and different content. Please create more videos about the fundamentals and ways of thinking❤
